Christopher Grey is an author of fiction focusing on conspiracy theories, secret societies and the occult. His special brand of storytelling dives into conspiracies and the occult from the point of view of the secret societies, attempting to dispel popular mistruths and paranoia prevalent in the mainstream.
Grey's fascination with the secret world began when he was sixteen after a chance meeting with a conspiracy theorist in a coffee shop sometime in the 1990s. The conversation with this man led Grey on a lifelong scholarly endeavor to learn about secret societies and the occult from a skeptical and secular point of view.
Over the past 15 years, he has been involved in various fraternal societies and has sought to explore the undercurrents of human civilization–to uncover the hidden histories and the forces and patterns that have designed what society has become and to demystify the hidden forces in our society that, for so long, have been vilified and misunderstood.
When he finally returns to his Texas hometown, Natalie, the girl he left behind, is overcome by the happiness of discovering him alive. But their joy is soon disrupted by the unexplainable abduction of Natalies four year old daughter. Feeling his return and the disappearance of the little girl are somehow connected, Temp sets out on an elaborate search for the child. As he pieces together the terrifying clues and dodges the suspicions of a wily police lieutenant, Temp must avoid an array of deadly traps set before him by using his knowledge of the past, the gifts of his physical prowess and the superior abilities of his cunning mind.
The search for the four-year-old soon becomes a labyrinth of mystery leading him through the dark streets of Dallas Texas and finally to a clandestine state of the art security compound hidden deep within the city. Temp soon discovers that the truth of JFKs death lies not with Lee Harvey Oswald, but with a child who wasnt born until five years after the presidents murder---Natalies little girl, Paris.
One beautiful autumn day, while he undergoes a routine medical procedure, something goes irrevocably wrong. Dodge is pronounced brain dead and put on life support, leaving his stunned family and close friends with difficult decisions. Long ago, when a much younger Dodge drew up his will, he directed that his body be given to a cryonics company now owned by enigmatic tech entrepreneur Elmo Shepherd. Legally bound to follow the directive despite their misgivings, Dodge’s family has his brain scanned and its data structures uploaded and stored in the cloud, until it can eventually be revived.
In the coming years, technology allows Dodge’s brain to be turned back on. It is an achievement that is nothing less than the disruption of death itself. An eternal afterlife—the Bitworld—is created, in which humans continue to exist as digital souls.
But this brave new immortal world is not the Utopia it might first seem . . .
Fall, or Dodge in Hell is pure, unadulterated fun: a grand drama of analog and digital, man and machine, angels and demons, gods and followers, the finite and the eternal. In this exhilarating epic, Neal Stephenson raises profound existential questions and touches on the revolutionary breakthroughs that are transforming our future. Combining the technological, philosophical, and spiritual in one grand myth, he delivers a mind-blowing speculative literary saga for the modern age.
